Coaching Programs Capacity Coordinator VISTA at The Hub
The West Virginia Community Development Hub supports West Virginians with the tools and training they need to lead and spark positive change in their hometowns and across our state. The Hub’s purpose is to coach volunteer community leadership teams to help them build sustained development in rural communities; and grow the overall community economic development system in West Virginia through collaborative partnerships that use innovative approaches to address systemic challenges for rural development. The Hub has served over 50 communities in West Virginia through on-the-ground coaching work, which has kickstarted dramatic redevelopment and increased community engagement, particularly in coal-impacted communities. In 2023, the coaching programs of The Hub will continue to evolve to meet the many and changing needs of our communities. Three programs in particular will create exciting community momentum. The Hub’s community coaching programs are the engine that drives communities towards unlocking their own transformational change. This role will support three projects across levels of community capacity, making a meaningful impact across the state. The programs are Downtown Appalachia: Revitalizing Recreational Economies (DARRE), Cultivate WV and the Community Business Resiliency Initiative (CBRI). More about these programs can be found on The Hub's website.
